    The official Harry Chapin website, harrychapinmusic.com , has now made available as a 25th anniversary tribute, the Hamilton Place concert from 1981 as an expanded 25th anniversary edition DVD. The concert was originally a pay-TV special, and several performances and moments of stage banter were removed in the interest of time constraints. The concert was re-issued on VHS as "You Are The Only Song".

    5 additional songs from the show are included as bonus material. At this stage, it is exclusive to harrychapinmusic.com.

    As an aside, also newly available on CD is the second live Chapin album, "Legends Of The Lost And Found". Both live performances are excellent documents of the late storyteller.

    Yes, there were a few music titles that got released on CED from MGM but also on laserdisc from Fox- there was even a CBS/FOX sampler CED that included clips from some of these even though MGM put them out on that format. Don't know what the story was on that.
